LAPOYNOR, Texas (KLTV) - A LaPoynor ISD employee is in custody after evidence found in a girls locker room went missing.
According to a Facebook post by the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office, Jammie Maze, 44, of Brownsboro, was arrested Friday after a warrant was obtained by investigators. The post said Henderson County Sheriff Botie Hillhouse was alerted by LaPoynor ISD Police Chief John Daniels that the school was in need of assistance in regards to missing evidence.
